When looking at this list, I see a few surprises & a lot of the expected. Not near as many "new" artists as I would like showing I need to branch out a bit more in my listening habits. I will talk about the surprising (to me) bands included as i list each one. However, there are a few artists that I just assumed would easily be in a Top 50 for me but are not. Top of that list are Missy Higgins, Hayes Carll, & The Randies. Will they return in 2010? I certainly hope so.
Anyway without further blah blah blah
New artist for me this year, introduced by a fellow last & blip fm'er. Thanks JLP.
